Got Digits?

1133 Sixth Avenue, New York City: The national debt clock had to add an extra digit on Wednesday, as the number inched ahead of US$10 Trillion. At least there's ONE economic metric that's growing.

There are 10^11 stars in the galaxy. That used to be a huge number. But it's only a hundred billion. It's less than the national deficit! We used to call them astronomical numbers. Now we should call them economical numbers.
